Lowes.com offers indoor/outdoor rugs in a wide variety of styles, colors, patterns and sizes. As of 2015, available rugs range from a 6-by-8-foot needlebond rug to a reversible 12-by-15-foot braided Sunbrella acrylic rug.
Recommended materials for outdoor rugs include ultraviolet-treated polypropylene, nylon and acrylic. Manufacturers use these synthetic fibers to create hooked, braided and woven rugs in decorative colors and patterns. Natural fibers such as jute and cotton aren’t advised for long-term outdoor use because weather conditions cause them to break down, fade and mold easily. Lowes.com’s best-selling and highest-rated indoor/outdoor rug is the 8-by-10-foot New Haven rectangular woven area rug. Customers rate it 4.8 out of five stars, remarking on how great the rug looks and how long it lasts.
